The federal government's lack of initiative or speed to support projects is being blamed by the former executive of the Interactive Multimedia Producers Association of Canada (IMPAC) for its own languishing progress. While the organization continues to operate, and has a single staff member and office space in Montreal, its first executive VP, Maxim Engel, has resigned, frustrated by the association's inability to nudge the federal government into action on items such as overhauling Telefilm Canada. In the meantime, Canada's nine-month-old national new media association is in a state of limbo.
